The Body Shop Blogger Event

A couple of weeks ago The Body Shop on Princes Street hosted a blogger evening which I was invited along to. It was a great little event, where I was warmly welcomed into the shop after hours to view the new products and catch-up with some of the other Edinburgh bloggers. I was offered a drink of Prosecco on arrival and the staff were very quick to talk me through all the new Christmas products, as well as anything else that I was interested in. The staff were all so lovely and chatty, and extremely knowledgeable about all their products which was great. I fell in love with a few of the new scents for Christmas, both Glazed Apple and Vanilla Brulee smell amazing! I especially loved the scented glitter sparklers which one of the girls showed me can be used to add a bit of sparkle to your face, body, hair and even clothes. She demonstrated on the black shirt I was wearing and it created a great look for a party or night out, and this is definitely one of the products I tempted to go back and buy for the festive party season! I was also very impressed by the Christmas gifts, especially the wind up musical tin with the mini body butters!

I did purchase some make-up whilst at the event. I'd been thinking that I was in need of some new eyeshadow and so when I spotted this set for £20 it seemed too good to resist. For £20 you get to create your own set by choosing three different eye shadow colours and a kohl eyeliner, and it also comes with a eye shadow brush. I chose neutral brown tones but in three different shades and a brown eyeliner, I thought this would be a change as I've always stuck to black for my eyes. Having never really been very into make-up, I'd never actually used a highlighting colour under my eyebrows before and so the light shade that I picked has definitely been the most used so far and I love the result. 

I had looked on the website prior to my visit to the shop and straight away the Vanilla Brulee range stood out as the type of scent I would always go for, so it wasn't a hard choice when we got to choose a goody bag from the range of Christmas scents. The goody bag we all received was amazing and the value of the products inside is over £20 which I think is an amazingly kind gift from them. It was a great event to attend and I'm definitely planning a return visit to the shop soon, maybe for some Christmas presents but more likely for a few treats for myself!
